  1. Alfa GT Boot Leak

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Have digested all the wisdom in previous posts about water in the boot but no joy. I have clear taped over the entire length of the roof seals and the rear light clusters and siliconed the hinge brackets -the wetness remains mainly on the carpet around the rim of the wheel arch. My question now...

  3. Boot Light/Door drop ****ing me off!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    GT boot light not working. It did work when I got the car. When you open the boot the 'Boot Open' indicator comes on on the dash. I've tried two bulbs and even an new light module as the one in there was broken from prying the wrong end. I've tried spraying contact cleaner into the lock...
  4. No 12v socket in boot

    Alfa Giulietta
    I've just bought a 66 plate 1.6 Giulietta tecnica and I was surprised to see it hasn't got a 12v socket in the boot - just a plastic blank where it should be. I have a 2011 lusso that has one - was this an optional extra, and is it possible to fit one?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  6. Different Boot Problem

    Alfa Giulietta
    Suddenly the boot lid on my Giulietta failed to latch unless I really slammed it hard. When I looked closer I found the latching bar was loose and I assume that when the latch pushed down on the bar it merely pushed the bar further down rather than opening the latch. Luckily it was a simple...
  7. Gear Linkage Boot

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all. I'm trying to replace the gear linkage boot that covers some bits that sit on top of the gearbox (6 speed). I've undone everything as you can see, and even removed the whole insert piece but I'm unsure if it's very easy to take apart the whole mechanism. I see there is a cir-clip and a...

  9. Replacing nearside inner CV Boot

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    First timer hello! Noticed a vibration under acceleration and after a search here checked the CV boots, grease everywhere! Passenger/Nearside inner one seems to have thrown it everywhere, can't see an actual split so maybe it just wasn't done up tight enough. All very annoying as I paid a SE...

  14. Boot light and boot open light not working

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My boot light and the boot open warning light on the dash aren't working. It seems to different to the problem most people have - my boot open light on the dash won't come on when the boot is open - most threads I've seen on here relate to the light being on when the boot is closed. I've done...

    My remote boot lock has never worked on cf3 156 v6. All the available wiring diagrams and manuals dont show how its wired up or are for a cf2 which didnt have this feature.

  19. Stelvio owners, boot and dogs!

    Alfa Stelvio
    Getting ahead of myself maybe but excited (and also anxious) to plan what vehicle will replace my Giulia Veloce next year. I have 2 dogs, one of which is quite a large labradoodle, and it's paining me having them on the back seat of the Giulia, albeit with a full 'hammock' in place. It's also...
  20. Fixing 147 boot actuator

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 147's boot stopped opening when pressing the related keyfob button or the boot release button on the dash. The actuator was heard like working just fine but could not open the boot. The problem is that the actuator has plastic gears inside, which they tend to break. The fix is to replace the...
